Abramovitz takes Grand Champion at State Fair
November 8, 2017
Dawson Abramovitz, member of the Purdy FFA Chapter, attended the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, August 10 to 13. Accompanied by Purdy FFA Alumni member Joe Grissom and family, Dawson came to the fair with one goal in sight: to show to the best of his abilities and have fun doing it. While showing the Hereford cow/calf pair, Dawson did an outstanding job, achieving Grand Champion. Abramovitz noted of the event, “When the judge stepped up to shake my hand, I felt a wave of pride come over me as I realized I had done something that not many people get the opportunity to achieve. I’m very thankful for the Grissom family and their contribution in helping me get this far in showing.” Abramovitz is pictured, right, with Morgan Grissom, left, and his Grand Champion.
